Chocolate Brides: Hair Question

Recommended Posts

@Toiinlove: I think the braids may work best. There's more versatility and your hair will be protected. It's important to feel beautiful and comfortable on your day. You shouldn't be worrying if your tracks are showing, etc. If you get the micros, you can still curl, straighten, pony, leave it down, whatever in terms of styling. Also, the braids don't need to be braided all the way down (i.e. tree braids).

 

However, if you're still "toying" (sorry couldn't resist!) with the idea of a sew-in, may I suggest the invisible part technique? Research the two options, talk with your stylist about both, and hopefully that'll narrow it down for you.

 

All the best!

Have you considered a lace front wig??  They can offer many style options, you can use a curling iron and youâ€re not required you to wear your hair or edges out.  I wear them all the time and I don't glue it to my skin so I can take it off as often as I want.  One of my BM wears them as well and she gets them glued and I thought it looked great.  It didn't look like a lace front wig, it looked like she had a great weave.  So if youâ€re open to it I wore Model Model "Inspire" for my cousinâ€s wedding.  Here is a link to girl trying it on and to me it looks like a weave that is very versatile http://lacefronwigsandmore.blogspot.com/2011/03/model-modelss-inspire-ii-hello-all-this.html 

 

Hope this helps!

SweetLe,

 

If you are not into weaves clip-ins are a great option. They are basically thin tracks attached to small clips. You clip them into your hair in the areas that you want to add length, thickness, or even color. When you are done with the style you take them out. There are a few youtube videos out there. Here is one.

Hope that helps.

I don't think a sew in will work for this, not sure if tracks glued in will be best-- and I've been reading about the clips, on here. But i don't really understand how they work.... Any advice would be great! Thanks.

I go in the morning to choose my hair and have my clip ins made. I am still on the fence about the length and color. I figure I should go long because I could always trim or cut them. I am really debating if I want highlights in them or just my natural hair color. So many decisions urrrggghh!!

Thanks for all the tips, ladies. I'm going to check our the clips on you tube (when I'm not at work :). I've had one sew in before-- and I felt like it just didn't blend well... not really sure I want to try that again. But I will keep my options open... I guess I need to make some appointments with my stylist to start experimenting!

@ Toiinlove, I would recommend a full sew in with a closure piece for the top.

I ordered Virgin Brazilian Wavy hair from www.demuretresses.com, and the price was more than Indian but it was definately worth it. When the hair is wet it has a beautiful wave, perfect for carefree honeymoon hair, and it can be flat ironed bone straight! There's no hair like it. I've used extensions plus in the past b/c the celebrities wear it, but it still looks weavy. But not the Brazilian hair Demure Tresses carries. It's truly virgin so it looks just like your real hair. People who don't know me don't even know I'm wearing extensions.

Using a closure will allow your stylist to braid all of your hair up and give you the freedom to part the hair down the middle on the side or cut some cute bangs into it.

You should check them out... their facebook page is off the chain... it's real photos of real women wearing their hair. www.facebook.com/demuretresses

 

Take it from me, Full sew-in with Virgin Brazilian Extensions with a Closure to match!

Or, maybe get a full sew-in with no hair left out.  If you are okay with a bang, or allowing it to fall to the sides, you could still get a full sew-in and not have to leave any hair out.

Hey Brown Barbie,

 

I was totally set on the micro braids but my mother and fiance are totally against it. I actually found someone close to me that does a wonderful sew-in with a closure and her work looks great. I think I am going to do a trail run with her with regular virgin Indian hair and then use the Virgin Brazilian Wavy hair for the wedding. Thanks so much ladies for all your support!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
